Abstract:

To prevent the collapse of the global financial system in 2008, the U.S. Treasury Department committed $245 billion of taxpayers' money to stabilize the nation's banking institutions. Some opposed this move, arguing that troubled banks should be allowed to fail and go out of business, but supporters contended that these banks were "too big to fail" and that their failure would wreak greater havoc on the economy. Today, these big banks have only grown bigger, with JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, and Goldman Sachs holding assets equal to more than 50 percent of the U.S. economy. Did these big banks contribute to the nation's economic problems, or did they help resolve them? Have Dodd-Frank and other reforms already solved "too big to fail"? Should the big banks be broken up? (103 minutes.).
